Frontier Airlines’ Caribbean Expansion to Include St Thomas, Cozumel
Frontier Airline is launching a new expansion in the Caribbean that will include a pair of new destinations: St Thomas, US Virgin Islands and Cozumel off the Caribbean coast of Mexico.
On Feb. 13, the carrier will launch weekly Saturday service between Denver, Colo. and the island of Cozumel.
And on Feb. 19, Frontier will launch its first-ever flights to St Thomas, with twice-weekly service from Orlando.
“We are grateful for and greatly encouraged by Frontier’s partnership and support of our efforts to build aerial access to the U.S. Virgin Islands. The carrier’s strategic decision to inaugurate service to ‘Rock City’ is another critical airlift development success for the Territory, as it helps us to address the growing demand of stateside visitors – as well as Virgin Islanders living abroad – to come to the USVI,” said US Virgin Islands Tourism Commissioner Joseph Boschulte.
The new service is part of a broader Caribbean push for Frontier, which will also be launching new flights to Cancun, Mexico and both Santo Domingo and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic in February.
New flights from Orlando to Cancun will launch Feb. 11, with service four times each week.
On the same date, Frontier will begin operating twice-weekly flights from Orlando to Punta Cana and twice-weekly service from Orlando to Santo Domingo.
It’s a sign of Orlando International Airport’s growing importance to the Caribbean, with Frontier’s Orlando ramp-up following a high-profile expansion for fellow low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines in Orlando in recent years.
“We’re excited to expand our network with these new routes and bring our brand of friendly service and low fares to great new destinations,” said Daniel Shurz, senior vice president of commercial, Frontier Airlines. “Frontier is committed to protecting the health and safety of our customers on every flight and this new service will adhere to Frontier’s highest health standards, including enhanced cleaning, temperature screenings for all passengers and required mask wearing.”
